Real Madrid also seemed to be interested in signing the 28-year-old on a next-to-nothing fee next year.
However, things seem to have a taken a turn now with the Spanish club focusing on signing Kylian Mbappe from PSG with an offer worth €160million also on the table, according to ESPN (h/t sportslens).
